So you want to “reunite” with your ex do you? Well why not try something different with your ex. If you can persuade her to attend a yoga class with you, or better yet, hire a yoga DVD, shoot out and purchase 2 Yoga mats and send her an invitation directing time, place and attire, it is bound to pique her curiosity.
You could start off by telling her what Yoga means, which is that the word Yoga is derived from the Sanskrit word “Yuj” meaning to yoke, join or unite. This implies joining or integrating all aspects of the individual – body with mind and mind with soul – to achieve a happy, balanced and useful life, and spiritually, uniting the individual with the supreme. You do want to “reunite” with her but you need to seek some balance first. What better way that to use Yoga to achieve both these objectives?
Not only will Yoga help you relax while toning and strengthening your muscles, but done in the privacy of your home, you can start off slowly by following three simple exercises that are user-friendly, fun and good for you. Obviously the ambience is important so lighting some scented candles, dimming the lights, or burning some subtle incense can certainly add to the “mood” you are trying to create.
The idea is to do these exercises together at first, helping each other out. In other words, you stand either next to, in front of or alongside one another. This is what I mean by creating a sense of unity or “reuniting”. Not only will be she be reassured that you are there to help her if she falls but as you are both novices in the art of Yoga, doing these simple exercises together should create a sense of fun, excitement and make her realize you are prepared to try something new and possibly totally foreign to you. The three simple, easy to follow exercises are:
The Downward facing dog
Place your hands and your knees on the floor, your palms should be flat with your fingers extended forward and should be ever so slightly forward of the line of your shoulders. Inhale deeply, filling your lungs with air. As you exhale lift your knees off the ground so that you are standing on your hands and toes. Inhale deeply once more and as you exhale try to touch the floor with your heels. Don’t force this, just stretch as far as is comfortable. While in this position concentrate on breathing deeply and remain there for fifteen seconds.
The Inner thigh stretch
Sit on your yoga mat and spread you legs as wide as they will comfortably stretch, forming a V shape, with your hands on the floor in front of you. Make sure that you are sitting up straight as you inhale deeply. As you exhale move your hands forward as if walking and start to lean forward, your chest moving toward the floor as far as is comfortable. From this position take three deep breaths before slowly uncurling to your upright sitting position. Repeat this exercise three times for the best effect.
The Butterfly pose
Sit up straight on your yoga mat and bring your feet together in front of you so that the soles are touching. Inhale deeply and as you exhale place your hands on your toes and very gently pull your heels closer toward you. Inhale once more and as you exhale lean forward while keeping your back straight as long as you are comfortable. Concentrate on deep inhalation and exhalation while you hold this pose for one minute before slowly returning to an upright seated position.
If the exercises not only work in relaxing both of you, then it could be a fun couple thing to do in attending further yoga classes. These 3 simple moves can be done in a pair as well as individually and you’d be surprised at how relaxed, content and good you both will feel once you have attempted them a few times. These yoga moves are a perfect excuse to make “amends” and “reunite” with your loved one.
